The Schoolhouse Nursery School and Kindergarten

Old school learning, new school feel!

Mrs. Platt and Mrs. Patrizi - 2 1/2 year olds AM

February will be another busy month for our 2 1/2 yr. old classroom friends. We will continue to learn about our winter world through the animals that live in this cold weather. Polar bears and Penguins love to play in the snow and ice and so do our 2 year olds!

We learn so much through fun and play. Our circle time activities will continue to focus on listening skills and patience through “taking turns.” These are tough social skills for our little ones to learn, but with repetition and reminders, many of the children are waiting for it to be their turn.

Our shape unit has begun…



The children have been practicing a wonderful shape song, ASK THEM TO PERFORM IT FOR YOU!

Our Valentine’s Day activities will center on being good friends and showing our families how much we love them. Our Valentine Pajama Party will be held on February 10TH. Please send in 11 valentines with your child anytime before the 10th so they can deliver them to their classmates during class. DO NOT ADDRESS THE VALENTINES TO: ANY SPECIFIC CHILD. ONLY WRITE A NAME IN THE VALENTINE FROM: YOUR CHILD. We will be making our Valentine mailboxes out of plain brown paper bags (grocery size). If you have any to spare, we’d greatly appreciate them!


Please note some helpful reminders…

  • Label all of your child’s belongings (coats, backpacks, etc)
  • Please be sure your child’s backpack is large enough to fit a winter jacket
  • Place a change of clothing in a Ziploc bag for accidents or spills.
  • If your child is not potty trained, provide 2 diapers and wipes in a Ziploc.
  • We are on the playground daily, proper footwear is extremely important,

Please no sandals or crocs.

  • Monthly calendars will be posted outside our room. We have 15 students.
  • Please send a HEATHLY SNACK DAILY to class. Water will be provided for all students.
  • Weekly activity notes will be posted outside our room.
